Be your own heroine : life lessons from literature

Andrews, Sophie (Writer on Jane Austen)2020
Having brought you the wisdom of Austen in 'Be More Jane', eager reader Sophie Andrews joins forces with her sister Charlotte and turns her attention to what can be learned from the heroines of other stories from past and present. Whatever your taste in authors, there will be strong female characters you can relate to, from Jo March, the tiger-sister in 'Little Women', to Eleanor Oliphant, the socially bemused heroine of Gail Honeyman's prize-winning first novel. There are spirited young women such as Elizabeth Bennet in 'Pride and Prejudice', and Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series; and then there are the survivors - July in 'The Long Song' and Katniss Everdene in 'The Hunger Games'. Sophie and Charlotte show how these six inspirational young women can inspire you and guide you through life's challenges.
